A few things that have made a difference:
- Extreme stress. Sorry, I know it’s not a good way to lose weight, but extreme stress is definitely contributing to me having less of an appetite.
- Packing. Moving around a lot of boxes and packing up the house turns out to be exercise!!
- Leadership – I took on the role of leader for one of my Sparkpeople teams. Being a leader and trying to set a good example has given me an extra level of accountability that I definitely needed. I love my Casual Travellers 5% Spring Challenge Team!! We have learned not to push ourselves too hard, but to do the best that we can and most importantly to TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES!!!
So, as you can see, I am still moving (albeit very slowly) in the right direction. And that makes me more confident that I will eventually reach my goal.
What makes a difference for you in your weight loss journey?
